Charities

We donate to, and are involved with, a number of charities and patriotic organizations but these are two of the most current and/or long running.

Granted, we’ve been involved with both in slightly different ways.

The Navy Seal Foundation

They are on my list now!
Thanks for the post!
 
I’m a big fan of Rotary International and/or local Rotary club.

Lots of good work both globally and locally. Extremely low overhead costs for an organization their size means more of the money goes to the work they do.

Locally (Puget Sound area) I’m a big fan of Northwest Harvest. Have volunteered there numerous times through work and Rotary, as well as making financial donations.

If you have any interest in wildlife organizations, The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF), Ducks Unlimited (DU), Trout Unlimited (TU), the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF), and Pheasants Forever all do a good job of managing and preserving land, water, and habitat for multiple species of North American creatures, not necessarily just the ones in their names.
 
Legacy, Salvation Army.

I limit who I give to because most charities spend most of what they donate on administration. I never donate at shopping centres (unless it’s the Salvos), because those people are paid to collect the money. On Legacy day, school kids generally volunteer to collect the money so more of it goes to those who need it. Otherwise I think too many charities are there to make business people rich. You need to know what percentage of donations go to where you want.
 
We donate to USO, Crime Victim Coalition and Local Law Enforcement charities monthly. Additionally, we donate to multiple K9 vest programs such as Project Paws Alive sporadically throughout the year.
Around X-Mas time the kids and I will get a X-Mas list from the schools and X-Mas shop for a kid.
We've been very fortunate over the past few years and it's nice to give to the programs that we believe in.

Edit: Also the local 4H program.
